In 2004 Iraqi born Zaha Hadid received the Nobel Prize for Architecture, the Pritzker. Her innovative work integrates dynamic building projects in surrounding city landscapes. Her topographical design studies of buildings and their environment have been sold in art galleries long before she got her first building made.
After the Vitra fire station in Weil, Hadid secured a number of commissions like the Cincinnati Art Museum or the Italian National Museum for Modern Art. For Hadid, architecture is a science like medicine. Years of research that explored three-dimensional space solutions in her unique way have deservedly won her the architecture.
